So this morning I was running very late, so as I was getting ready to leave, Ethan had just woken up and Daniel was getting him dressed. This is the scene that I saw unfold: Ethan is on the changing table, talking to his stuffed animal. It's still dark in the room because Ethan has just woken up and Daniel hasn't turned on the light. IN THE DARK Daniel reaches over to the shelf where Ethan's clothes are and RANDOMLY grabs something from the shirt shelf and another something from the pants shelf. I about have a heart attack.
It never occurred to me that this was how Daniel was dressing Ethan. I thought he just maybe didn't know what matched. Apparently the days that Ethan has actually looked like he was wearing a coordinated outfit have just been a fluke of what was on the top of the pile that day.
I'm going to have to start thinking about putting out Ethan's clothes the night before, apparently. These are the things that they need to teach in parenting class. Really. Lessons on what colors/patterns go together. Oh, and that buttons can go in the back of boys shirts. I wrote about this on the weight watchers board this morning and there was another person whose husband puts her son's shirts on backwards when they have buttons that fasten in the back. I keep explaining- tag in the back. Don't worry about the buttons if the tag is in the back. I get a blank stare every time. :)
Less than 15 hours until the big ultrasound!
